MHS Principal Adam Shaw talks about upgrades coming to CTE programs, after receiving $179,000 in grants

Madison High School will be adding some significant upgrades to its Career and Technical Programs, after receiving nearly 180-thousand dollars in grants from the South Dakota Department of Education. Madison was one of 36 schools around the state that received a grant to purchase innovative, industry-grade equipment for career and technical education.

Madison High School Principal Adam Shaw said they received word in early May that the grant funding was available. CTE teachers at the High School gave recommendations for equipment, and Shaw wrote the grant requests. 

He said one of the big equipment pieces will be for the MHS Health Science program. 

There will also be new equipment for Ag classes. 

Other purchases include Tig Welders, small engines, and a 5D imaging drone. 

Shaw says the growth of CTE programs at MHS is due to staff and community collaboration.
